UNI 292: Civic Engagement for Pre-Health Professions

The Civic Engagement for Pre-Health Professions is a two-credit course designed to facilitate civic engagement for pre-health students. Students gain a better understanding of becoming an engaged citizen in the pre-health community by volunteering, reflecting on experiences, building leadership skills and educating others. This course provides pre-health students with opportunities to engage in meaningful service in the local community and gain a broad understanding of strong leadership that can impact change in healthcare while preparing for a successful graduate school application process.
